Suddenly I miss going to library.
I don't really like to borrow book from public library, because I always return the book after it is due date. Although the library is just in front of my primary school, I still late in returning the books. If I ever borrow a book, I usually will borrow a thicker book. Because I can finish a thin book in few hours. So I rather read the book by standing at the book shelf, reading those short stories of folklore.
Then beside the primary school, lucky they set up PKJ (I forgot the abbreviation), they have a library too. So every recess time, I will go to the library to borrow some books. That was the time, I read many Iban language books. Lucky for me, there are translation for Iban words at the bottom of every page. I still remember my favourite Iban language book is 'Buaya Putih Buaya Kudung, written by Jong Chian Lai.
It is about the crocodile and a kid. I knew about crocodile's habitat from the book.
My mother always said, crocodile does'nt simply eat human, only eat those who is 'kepunan'. 'Kepunan' is a term referring to someone who refused to eat when the person was offered to eat, or if you feel like to eat something, and you don't get to eat the food. That's why my mum always ask us to touch the plate or food, when we are offered a food. I am not sure whether the word 'kepunan' is used in Sarawak or not, it is a word used in Sabah
Library in Miri is very scary when there is no one there. Have to be careful when you are alone there, because there are perverts on ground floor.
I used to bring a friend to library when he visited Miri. It is always make us laugh when we reminiscence about it. I even brought him to Miri digital library. It is not digital at all. I only like to read paper newspapers and hardcopy magazines in the digital library.
When I first learned how to drive, the first place I drove to is the LIBRARY!!
What a nerd am I.....
